3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Minocqua Brewing Company. Poured rich deeper amber with a sticky yellowy-beige head. The aroma picked up peppery rye, earth, and floral hoppage over sweet caramel and a pinch of honey.. some molasses as well on the back of the nose.. really nice! The flavor was quite sweet with caramel and molasses leading.. prickly rye, dark fruit, and leafy/earthy bitterness around.. just a little too sweet, but tasty. Sticky-sweet on the palate, but bitterness and rye cut through well.. scratchy and a little tacky in the end. Overall a very good offering.
